2> Sail tags are coming out, in addition we can make a statement that sails will be periodically checked at Regattas or can measured pre regatta. The owner has the option to going to an approved third party, such as a Johnstone, J Boat dealer, or a qualified non-related class official and have it measured to verify the sailmakers measurement. Once the sail has been checked for a second time, then the sail is permanently cleared and you no longer have to deal with any onsite measurements.

Once sail tags are established, will any sail maker in his/her right mind build a cheater sails, knowing full well that if they get caught, the consequences would be severe? Even in this transition period, a good sample of spinnakers and jibs turned up no problems. Seems like an unnecessary hassle for the class and the owners.
